I believe it. I gather it was not the mains switch but the electronic switch from the remote. Although that would also be possible. There have been experiments, with far less than this, but in principle the same sort of thing, which Smilepeople have done in the lab.

I think this is because the person you are referring to, labelled as schizophrenic, has realised his psychic/ spiritual powers are real and not because he has anything that other people don't have.

My ex had psychic experiences with me several times where we each knew what the other was thinking. She experimented with different forms of ritual magick and I wonder what impact that had on the experiences I shared with her. One time I summoned a UFO by saying "wouldn't it be interesting if we saw one" basically. But thinking back I wonder if her weird mental abilities also factored in to that at all./

She eventually went really crazy schizophrenic and was diagnosed BPD. THought the world was flat, everyone was robots, etc. Sad. I think its a caution against doing forms of magick that might work and that might change your brain.

To be fair to the second part, there are many scientists and neuro-psychologists that believe everyone are robots. So, there are some research that could suggest it isn't so outlandish.

Is there a fine line between psychic images and mental illness? Do people with a form of a neurological issues have a special ability? Does the issue open doors to this ability? Do people that hear voices and see images walk this fine line between schizophrenia or another disorder  and true abilities?

Through out time we see some people will induce an altered state to get answers, shamans, medicine men, some Indian cultures. We see sweat lodges, taking hallucinogens, fasting, and a host of other methods used to see visions. So does this fine line open the door to the future?

The  difference between a psychic ability and a mentally ill person is the ability to distinguish which reality they are operating in at any particular time and to consciously and Intent fully make this  transition. The ability to move between these places is when you can control your visions and your sanity.

Now this can also be said to those that see Ghosts, Demons, Angels and God.  Now I am hoping people will offer opinions on this based on their experiences.  

Now what I am looking for is for is people who claim to have these abilities have you ever been diagnosed  or treated with any form of a neurological issue.  This can be from adhd, to anxiety depression to schizophrenia, lesions, ms, to migraines.  

I am curious how many have or haven’t that have these abilities. Is learning to control walking the line the key to this?

The Schizophrenic drowns in the waters the Mystic swims in with delight.

   Interesting...uumm
      I am a scientist,  mental health professional and a psychic. While a toddler,I could hear and see spirits which freaked me out. Subsequently, these gifts were repressed. I grew up and became a psychologist and made fun of psychics and any such talk of spirits. However, my late,great Gram used to watch a talk show that frequently had psychics on. I knew how group hypnosis was done and how cold calling was done. Therefore, I laughed at my Gram. Then Gram passed away. I was lost. I read a book about Project Stargate. The military used psychics? Okay...Ummm...I then studied Edgar Cayce. Then researched the field of the paranormal. First I became a believer in Sasquatch after reading recounts of professionals,scientists,policemen,etc. Then I began developing psychically again. I was frightened at first as all those things flooded back. Then I was lucky to find a mentor. Today, I'm a psychic scientist. I still use the scientific method and just don't believe everything is Real.
     Unfortunately, it is impossible to conclude whether a patient diagnosed as Psychotic and Delusional is psychic. I do believe many patients who are depressed or have an anxiety condition are very psychic. Unfortunately, the medically field won't get funding to discern this topic which is sad. I suggest everyone be open-minded about everything. Keep the Faith!
